Seeing all my mistakes etched in stone
peeling off the layers of my soul
and I feel alone
And you stand beside me, a shadow of myself and I feel hollow, and I can't swallow
No, it's not fair
Nobody ever told me it would be this hard

So give me no more promises, and I'll tell you no more lies
It's not supposed to be this way

Reach your steady hand,
reach your promised land with or without me
'Cause I've fallen far away
too far for light of day, and I cease to be
But take comfort in the fact
that I won't be hanging on your back as you go forward
So say your prayers and say good night
Whether you're wrong, whether you're right, I know it's hard
to be who you want to be

No time to sit and comprehend,
I've made up my mind
To be a martyr for the cause,
and I can't pretend to mind
And you stand beside me, an outline of myself, and I feel OK, and I seem OK
No, it's not fair
Nobody ever told me this would never end,
and it happens once again
Oh, so go and lead your own life, and leavme to mine
I'm not prepared to die

Reach your steady hand,
reach your promised land with or without me
'Cause I've fallen far away
too far for light of day, and I cease to be
But take comfort in the fact
I won't be hanging on your back as you go forward
So say your prayers and say good night
Whether you're wrong, whether you're right, I know it's hard
to be who you want to be

Reach your steady hand,
reach your promised land with or without me
'Cause I've fallen far away
too far for light of day, and I cease to be
And you'll never, ever be
But take comfort in the fact
I won't be hanging on your back as you go forward
So say your prayers and say good night
Whether you're wrong, whether you're right, I know it's hard
to be who you want to be, yeah
To be who you want to be
